Unforgettable Steve Aaron and his Mammoth Jacks on Kentucky Life
Show airs tonight on KET-1, at 7:p.m., our time. New segment by Dave Shuffett, Greensburg native, who is host of Kentucky Life
One of Adair County's most famous sons, Dr. Steve Aaron, will be featured in 2006 KET production hosted by Dave Shuffett on Saturday evening, April 8, 2006, at 7:00 p.m. CDT, 8:00 p.m. EDT on KET-1.
"Dr. Steve Aaron continued a Kentucky tradition by raising Mammoth Jacks," the program guide says, "donkeys whose genetic line can be traced back to a gift of two donkeys from the King of Spain to George Washington."
Dr. Steve Aaron died September 22, 2005. He was most widely known as a surgeon, but he was a man of endless interests and pursuits, from authorship, to gardening, to history, travel, to the Mammoth Jacks. The jacks were a passion.
This interest led to world fame in the field, but it had close Adair County ties. One of his associates in the jack business was Junior Walker of Sparksville, Adair County.
As well, Allan Mercer Parnell, an Adair County who now heads a large trucking company in Jeffersonville, IN, was a partner with Dr. Aaron in the ownership of the world's largest Mammoth Jacks, who many from here would watch for as they travelled I-65 in Bullitt County.
